If Estonia has always been a country you’d love to explore, then now is the time to make those dreams come true.

The history that you’ll experience along the city streets of this nation is quite unique. It’s a mix of the communist influences of the Soviet Union with some medieval flair that truly makes it one of a kind. When you step into a public square anywhere in this nation, you will feel like you’re stepping back through time.

Estonia might be known for its rustic culinary options and affordable coffee, but you can’t forget about the beaches that are offered for your enjoyment either. You can go out tanning if you wish, but the winds will kick up from time to time and offer the perfect windsurfing conditions. Rent some equipment and enjoy the water on a warm day and you’ll have an amazing time.

The culture of Estonia is filled with folklore, which makes a visit to any city a one-of-a-kind experience. Over the years, there have been occupations by Germany, Russia, and Sweden and this has brought a certain level of cultural diversity that gives this nation some color. Whether you just walk down the street to find something unique or you want to visit as many of the 1,500 islands that Estonia has, the traditional ways have been preserved for you to enjoy.

Now here’s the best part about visiting Estonia: no matter what city you decide to visit, anywhere in the country is just a short day trip away. From the forests to the urban landscapes, there is always something incredible to see here.
